Tinubu’s Intervention isn’t enough to resolve Ondo Crisis – PDP

The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has said the intervention of President Bola Tinubu in the ongoing crisis between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, his deputy, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa and the state Assembly would not resolve the crisis.

The opposition party, through its Publicity Secretary, Mr Kennedy Peretei, described the nocturnal meeting as a mere window dressing, stressing that if Akeredolu does not return to the state, there won’t be any meaningful resolution of the crisis.

Also, an Ondo State All Progressives Congress pressure group, Ondo Solidarity Forum, in a communique issued by its acting chairman, Femi Ogunleye, and publicity secretary, Kayode Fasua, on Saturday, applauded Tinubu for his well-timed intervention in the political logjam in the state.


The group stated that it had become vindicated by its stance that Aiyedatiwa, should continue as acting governor, following Akeredolu’s absence.

It added that “the crisis between the deputy governor and a section of the Ondo State House of Assembly is the handiwork of a few persons in the state cabinet, who are best described as the cabal; because they individually want to succeed Akeredolu as the next governor of Ondo State.”

There have been several divergent reports on the outcome of the meeting of President Bola Tinubu with members of the Ondo State House of Assembly and other stakeholders over the lingering political crisis in the state.

President Tinubu had met with the leadership of the Assembly and the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state, at the State House, Abuja, late at night on Friday, in a bid to resolve the crisis.
